Baseball Eliminated From Playoff Contention
The Bobcats needed a win to avoid being eliminated from playoff contention. But they lost both games of the doubleheader to Wagner. Combined with a win by Monmouth, the Bobcats are now eliminated from playoff contention.
The Seahawks scored four early runs in the first game and then held on as the Bobcats staged a rally. The Seahawks scored two runs in each the first and second innings.
The Bobcats (14-38, 13-18 NEC) got one run back in the second on a Mike Bartlett single to right, driving in Chris Migani. The Bobcats scored once in each the fourth and the fifth innings, but it was not enough as the Bobcats fell 4-3.
Kyle Birdsall pitched the complete game, giving up four runs on seven hits and one walk.
In the second game the Seahawks again struck first, jumping out to a 4-0 lead after four innings. But the Bobcats wouldn’t go away. They cut the Seahawks to lead with three runs in the sixth.
Ben Farina drove in the first run of the inning with a single. Brian Monack followed with a single to put runners on first and second for Joe Poletsky. Poletsky delivered with a two run double to center. But that would be all the Bobcats would get.
The Seahawks scored three times in the bottom of the inning to seal the win and clinch their spot in the Northeast Conference Playoffs.
